Fun Fashion Fact

It is said that the red star on the Macy’s logo was inspired by a tattoo that Rowland Hussey Macy, the founder of the department store, got as a teenager while working on a Nantucket whaling ship, the Emily Morgan. The story goes that he was once lost at sea, but found a star to guide him to shore. The tattoo was a tribute to that day.
